So nice we went back one week later to have exactly the same dish!

This pub/ restaurant is fairly local to where we live. In the last 12 months it has a new manager who has, in our opinion turned it around for the good.

Eight of us went for lunch at short notice following a family ashes sprinkling. I rang just as they were opening asking if we could have a table in 10 minutes. When we arrived the table was ready, staff were attentive and the food was lovely. We were served by Sophia who well and truly deserved the tip we gave.... More

After a friend recommended The John Millington for Sunday lunch we decided to try it for ourselves. We were not disappointed. A friendly welcome by staff who found a table for us in the restaurant side even though we hadn't booked. A lovely Sunday lunch in a pleasant unrushed atmosphere. All the staff were friendly and approachable making a real... More

Sunday Lunch for a party of Ten. Great pub food or sunday lunch menu with something for everyone. The staff coped admirably with us, considering they were very busy. They never rushed us nor did they forget us. Food arrived when it should and tasted as good as it looked. Well managed by Chris. Will be visiting again Will be... More

We came for a family meal with my nieces, very friendly staff, they found us a table for 8 without a booking on a Sunday!
